Had alook at Blitz Channel this morning and they were showcasing every sporting event with Mandela touch n influence. Ranging from.Rugby WC 94 & 2007 as fpr soccer channels I think it will be content related to 2010 SWC, AFCoN 96 and Comfederations Cup as for your favourite sport Cricket im clueless whats Mamdela involvement was . Note this is jus my My Opinion

I'm not so sure about that. I just don't think the funeral of an aging politician who has been out of office for over a decade is going to have the worldwide mass appeal that something like the Olympics or Soccer World Cup would have, even if that politician is Nelson Mandela.

I have to strongly disagree with you there @Citanul. Spend 5 minutes on the internet and look at the reaction of across the world to his death… I think you underestimate how the rest of the world feels about Madiba.
